On my own

A while back, I suggested using WordPress as a basis for a website. I still think this is a good way to go. The problem is that, when you manage your own site, you are kind of, well, on your own.

One miracle, please

We hear a lot these days about terror and terrorists. But sometimes it seems like we are being terrorized by our own government.

The deciding factor

We are often presented with so many options that it becomes close to impossible to make a decision. Perhaps you, too, have been overwhelmed by the choices when buying a machine or picking a cellphone provider, for example.

Negative energy

It has been theorized and maybe even proven that everything is made up of energy: the solar system, the human body, even a woodworking shop.

Shut it down!

Not talking about the Beach Boys song. But I find myself thinking that the maturity level of our current leaders is far below the level implied in that song.

Too close for comfort

My last post about alarm systems turned out to be timely. The day after I posted it, my neighbor who runs a small grocery store/deli, got robbed.

Feeling safer

Those of us who have shops containing many thousands of dollars worth of tools, equipment and materials often worry about someone breaking in and making off with some (or all) of it.

WordPress is a great solution

My last post about doing things for yourself has led me to address a very specific need for any modern business: the need for a good web site.

Doing it myself

We, as makers, are generally pretty handy when it comes to fixing things. But, as business owners, we are often so pressed for time that subbing out repairs, maintenance and improvements seems like a sensible choice.

Timeless advice

I have said before that you cannot make time, nor can you find time, no matter how hard you look.
